Women stroke survivors believe they are less likely to get proper emergency care: Research – World News Network

California [US], November 6 (ANI): Women who have survived a stroke believe they are less likely to obtain proper emergency care, according to a study headed by Michigan Medicine and Brown University.
The study looked at survey data from the American Heart Association Research Goes Red Registry to see how women with and without a history of stroke perceived emergency treatment.
According to the findings published in Stroke, women with a history of stroke are more than three times more likely to believe “to a great extent” that they will not receive proper care in the emergency room due to their gender, race or ethnicity.
“It’s clear from our findings that some women who have experienced a stroke feel that they will not receive the highest quality care when facing health emergencies,” said first author Brian Stamm, M.D., clinical instructor of neurology at the University of Michigan Medical School.
“This is directly relevant to prior studies reporting that women who experienced cerebrovascular events, such as stroke, are more likely to be misdiagnosed and are less likely to receive clot-busting medications.”
Women accounted for 57.1 per cent of stroke deaths in 2019, and stroke caused 6.2 per cent of all female deaths that year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Vital Statistics System.
Black Americans are known to have a greater risk of stroke than white Americans, and a past study found that Black women less frequently receive advanced therapies for stroke, partially due to delays in getting to the emergency department after symptom onset.
While the study did not measure delays in emergency department presentation following stroke, researchers say the findings of negative healthcare perceptions may predispose these women to delays in treatment.
“Our future studies need to focus on whether the beliefs these women hold about emergency care are leading to delays in stroke care,” said co-author Regina Royan, M.D., M.P.H., clinical assistant professor of emergency medicine at U-M Medical School.
“With the time-sensitive nature of stroke treatment, it is essential that we find ways to mitigate these negative perceptions in this population to move closer to equity in health care.” (ANI)
